Is it just me? Have suddenly noticed the Nikon video ads at the bottom of the gallery on EVERY shot I'm voting/commenting... finding it quite distracting 😕

Like the one below the last forum comment, for the D850 ?

Nikon, apparently, have a big announcement on 23rd, Thursday so there is probably going to be even more of them !

That advert is very annoying, but I suppose it's in the place most likely to be seen.
Unless we we just vote under the image.Smile

This is a prime example of how advertising just does not work. From now on I think I will just click on vote so that I do not have to see this ad.

Extremely annoying and I can no longer browse Ephotozine when away from home and away from free Wi Fi as I certainly don't want that video add eating up all my data allowance.
So annoying when video adds start playing automatically, especially when you don't have the slightest interest in the product.

Can you not stop that in your browser's preferences ?

I am using Safari and have the feature " Auto-Play " option "Never Auto-Play " selected.

I dont think that is an Epz thing, its more of an advert network thing. I have been being followed by an institute of photography ad for ages. If you go into your browser settings and clear cookies then it should go away...just worked for me.

Precisely. I'm a Nikon user, planning an upgrade, but I find this ad seriously off-putting! It's an unnecessary and unwanted intrusion into my use of the site.

One other thing concerns me - I know a gentleman who suffers from epilepsy, and the cutting of the video, the way it jumps around unpredictably and at speed, is precisely the sort of thing that can trigger his attacks.

And in the last couple of minutes it has vanished. Hallelujah!

Yes, it seems to have gone. Perhaps someone is reading these comments.

I noticed it yesterday when I was on my tablet and soon got bored with the annoyence of it and simply left the site until this morning.
I've recently felt inclined to go back to using an add blocker on my PC . I'm a plus member so I make a contribution anyhow.

Its back again, at least it is on my PC. Still there as I write. Annoying adverts on the internet and on TV make me very unlikely to respond to them in a positive way. For example M**rkats and Welsh Tenors and Captain Infuriation or whatever.
